    Here’s a fun list via Baseball-Reference.com. It’s Yankees, since 1954, who had 10+ games, within the team’s first 40 games of a season, where they had one or more homeruns in a game:

                       Year Games Link to Individual Games

     Alfonso Soriano   2003    12 Ind. Games
     Alex Rodriguez    2007    12 Ind. Games
     Joe Pepitone      1969    12 Ind. Games
     Yogi Berra        1956    12 Ind. Games

    I wonder if Robbie Cano can add his name to the list this season? He’s got four 1+ homer games now in the first twenty games of 2009…
